Twelve THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, THURSDAY EVENING, AUGUST 21,1952. IN THE SPORTLIGHT FOR GIL SMITH Leavenworth Times Sports Editor No word from vacationing sports scribe Gil Smith so he must be too busy attending his time at ball games, golf matches, or fishing while taking his breathing spell In the meantime we offer an item of interest to hunters by Harry Lutz: Kansas will have the most liberal upland game bird hunting seasons this fall in many years, according to the 1952 hunting seasons and regulations as announced last weekend by the Kansas Forestry. Fish and Game Commission, j Hunters were given a 10-day consecutive season on pheasants, October 24 through November 2; 14-day stagafred quail season opening November 11, and a one-day open season on prairie chicken on October 22. Not only were pheasant hunters given more shooting days but nine additional counties were opened to shooting for the first time. The new countries include Clark, Comanche, Edwards, Kingman, Kiowa, McPherson, Reno, Rice, and Washington. In all 60 counties will be open to pheasant shooting during the 1952 season. At the same time, the Commission announced that two additional counties, Butler, Cowley, were added, to the counties open for the one-day prairie chicken season, making 18 counties in all in which hunting of chickens will be allowed. Commenting on the liberalized seasons, Dave Leahy, director of the commission, said, "Our game census and surveys showed a good increase in game bird populations throughout the state, so the Commission felt it only fair to give hunters more days to hunt We can harvest more of our game birds without jeopardizing in any way the supply for .the future." Hunters generally were given a break in the seasons as set. Quail hunters have two holidays and three weekends (Saturday and Sunday) in which they may hunt Pheasant hunters have two weekends to hunt St. Joseph AB R H PO A Herbinson, 2b 41-213 Hutchinson. cf 41211 Machholb, 3b 51001 Darnell, Ib 3 1 1 15 0 Chew, c 50140 Farley, If 51210 Pruett, ss 31125 Lipira. rt 50130 Riordan, p 40003 Totals VFW Hessenflow, ss 3 Seymour, 2b 4 Wilk.

Here's another item picked up from neighboring paper across the river, the Weston Chronicle: Fishing honors for the 1952 season will undoubtiy go to Earl Benner, Weston and Bud Hinz, Leavenworth. .Last week on the spur of the moment, the two went to Minnesota where they spent- three days fishing the Eagle River chain of lakes. Since they like to do things in a big way Benner threw in his hook and took out a 30 Ib., 3 ounce muskie. Not to be outdone Hinz caught one that tipped the scales at 44 pounds, said to be the largest fish caught in that vicinity in 15 years. Henceforth the two- fish will •hang over the mantels in their respective homes. Here's an item left over from Gil's column last Sunday which he didn't have room for: Leavenworth is to be included among nine Kansas cities taking part in the annual National Boy and Girl Better Fishing Rodeo, a nation-wide affair, scheduled August 23. The local rodeo, to be held at Fort Leavenworth's Smith Lake, will be sponsored by Leavenworth Recreation Commission and Fort Leavenworth authorities. Latest Kansas Fish and Game Commission bulletin includes the following: Nine towns and cities in Kansas are registered to participate in the annual National Boy and Girl Better Fishing Rodeo, which will be held throughout the nation on August 23. The event is sponsored by Better Fishing. Inc.. a non-profit, noncommercial organization to educate youth in fishing and outdoor learning. Fishing is a wonderful way to teach sportsmanship, and a -wholesome pastime which often aids measurably in clearing up delinquent problems. Kansas State Game Protectors will be on hand at the rodeos to help the youngsters with their rods and lines, explaining basic conservation, and generally acting a s teachers and friends art conservation. Brooke Army Team Pacing Non-Pros WICHITA OB—The strong Brooke Army Medical Center team, bolstered by several former major league players, looks like a long, range favorite to win the national non-pro baseball tournament title. The San Antonio, Tex., club's stock went up with the defeat of the Sinton, Tex., Oilers, the defending champions, in their first start. Sinton still has a chance to retain the title since it takes two losses to oust a team, from the meet The Brooke team plays its second-round game Thursday night, meeting the Crossville, Term., Blues. Brooke beat Ft. Meade, MD., 12-1, in its opening game. Sfc Joseph Blanks Indians Last Night by Score of 6-O MO-KanLead Increased by Missourians By HOWARD PHILLIPS Behind the 4-hit pitching of Lefty Tom Riordan, Marion's Tavern of St. Joseph increased their hold on first place in the Mo-Kan league by blanking the VFW Indians at Wadsworth" Park last night The score was G-0. St. Joseph jumped on Don Huffman, local VFW ace who went the route, for three runs and five hits in the first two innings. They led all the way. Hutfman settled down until the seventh when playing manager Hutchinson blasted Huffman's second pitch high over the center field barrier, about 340 feet, for a home run. St. Joseph scored two more in the ninth, both unearned. Only three runs were made against Huffman who gave up ten hits while striking out 14. Manager Carl Wilk and Jim Powell were the only VFW's to solve Lefty Riordan's offerings. Each got two hits, one a long double by Powell. Tonight the Indians are scheduled to play at St. Joseph with Bob Hedrich or Wayne Seymour slated to pitch with Tony Gorski catching, 6 10 27 13 ~AB R H PO A 0 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 2 4 0 1 0 2' 3 002 001 0 0 14 000 By RALPH RODEN AP Sports Writer Ever since Luke Easter became a regular on the Indians it has been said, "As Easter goes so go the Indians." Cleveland's pennant hopes have waxed and wanted the past two seasons coinciding with the rise or decline of Easter at the plate. A trick knee more than lack of punch in the clutch has been responsible for Easter's failure to deliver the ;oods in the past. His value to the Indians is clear- Legion Tournament Starts At Neodesha on Friday NEODESHA, Kas., (»—The Neodesha Junior American Legion nvitational baseball tournament opens here Friday with ten teams rom three states listed as entries.

Big Luke is hot right now and so are the Indians. Cleveland, with Easter playing a eading roll, swamped the Boston Hed Sox, 1S-8, Wednesday and pulled to within a game o£ the American League's front-running New York Yankees. The Yanks were humiliated, 12-3, by the Chicago iVhite Sox. Philadelphia tripped Detroit, 4-3, in the circuit's only night game. A night game between St. Louis and Washington was rained out.

In other games, Philadelphia tamed Pittsburgh, 3-1, and St. Louis trounced Boston, 9-2, in a game called in the eighth inning because of rain. The Indians could take 6ver the lead today with the help of Chicago. A Cleveland victory over Boston and a Chicago win over w York would enable the Indians to move out in front by one percentage point. Cleveland enters the crucial stage of its 12-game road trip Friday when it invades Yankee Stadium for a two game series.
